God Knows Your Name


I can’t contain this burning love

God’s Truth no longer hide

How Jesus died and rose above

To furnish for His bride


I’m called by God I’m saved by grace

I’m cleansed of sin and shame

I know one day I’ll see the face

Of He who knows my name


I may not know your name right now

I may not know your face

But in true love I’ll show you how

You’ll find God’s saving grace


The grace of God is mine to share

The love of Jesus too!

And so for people everywhere

I know what I must do


I need to practice what I preach

In service, pay my dues

And so The Truth your soul can reach

I’ll share Salvation’s news


I’ll tell you how I came to die

Of how I came to live

Reveal to you The Way on high

And treasures God will give


It’s true my friend, I’ve heard Him speak

The voice of God quite plain

If you repent and Jesus seek

For you; He’ll come again


If still you don’t believe my friend

It’s hard for you to see

But if to Christ your knee will bend

The Truth will set you free.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
